Well-Woman annual exam

A Well-Woman Exam is your once-a-year visit for a general check-up, including a breast exam and pelvic exam. Your Well-Woman Exam is also the time for you to ask questions and discuss gynaecologic health concerns you may have. This examination does not include a discussion of new problems or a detailed review of chronic conditions.

What happens if you have a new health problem when you come for your annual exam?

You and your provider will need to decide whether to use the time that day to address your problem, in which case your annual exam visit can be rescheduled. Or you may choose to go ahead with your annual exam, and to defer the health concern to another visit. Scheduled appointment times do not allow for both.
